WWE Slammy Awards 2014 Results: Sting Wins First Ever Slammy With First WWE Appearance
Former Shield members Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins were the big winners at WWE's 2014 Slammy Awards...
Former partners Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose were the big winners at WWE's 2014 Slammy Awards - but even the ex Shield members couldn't match Sting's succss, recognised for his sole, brief and wordless appearance at Suvrivor Series.
But it was triple award winner Seth who walked away with the WCW legend's trophy for the This Is Awesome moment after it was revealed by guest host Seth Green that Sting would not be collecting his Slammy in person and the Money in the Bank contract holder pounced, accepting the award on Sting's unrequested behalf.
Despite being chased off by Rollins, a super-enthused Green wouldn't have had it any other way.
"I'm a big fan of this entire organisation, and this entire production," he said during Raw Fallout.
"I love all these guys and so it was a real thrill to hang out with them and get to host the show.
"It has been a crazy night."
Neither was Brock Lesnar also in attendance at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in South Carolina to pick up his Slammy for OMG Shocking Moment of the Year. However, his advocate Paul Heyman was on hand and later advised Rollins he should cement his elevation to the upper echelons of WWE competitors by ensuring opponent John Cena is "firmly entrenched in the past" at this Sunday's TLC: Tables, Ladders, Chairs... and Stairs event.
Several winners - including the likes of The Rock, The Usos and Hugh Jackman - were announced before the Monday night flagship programme began on WWE.com and the Raw pre-show.
Guest presenters included Rob Van Dam, Ricky Steamboat and Booker T.
WWE Hall of Famer and MOTY Slammy presenter Ricky noted: "Tonight was such a special moment for me.
"I've had the nod on a few occasions [for MOTY] throughout my career.
"With the WWE Universe voting on why they felt should win, it is a testament to Dolph and John Cena that won the Match of the Year award."
